Tom's Cypress.

Tom's Cypress

This cluttered roadside business is along US Hwy 301 in the small town of Waldo (famous for being a speed trap). They specialize in making sculptures and clocks out of cypress... and they have thousands of Coke bottles for sale. Although it is a business, you can roam freely about the property and see the rooms of what was apparently an old motel, now filled with slabs of cypress and cases upon cases of Coke bottles. I know this is a business and not an attraction per se, but it's such an unusual place I've stopped by several times just to look around.
